Legendary former West Indies fast bowler, Courtney Walsh, has been appointed Bangladesh’s interim head coach for the Tri-Nation series in Sri Lanka later this month.
The 55-year-old Jamaican has served as the side’s bowling coach for the last two years but has been given the top role with the Bangladesh Cricket Board’s inability to find a replacement for Chandika Hathurusingha who quit last year.
Walsh joined the Bangladesh team in September 2016 on a three-year contract and has since worked closely with the side’s bowlers especially in developing the fast bowler stocks.
He will now oversee the squad’s preparation for the Nidahas Trophy Twenty20 tournament, which involves powerhouse India and hosts Sri Lanka.
Walsh played 132 Tests, finishing as the all-time leading West Indies bowler with 519 wickets.
